The Deninu Kue First Nation of Fort Resolution, N.W.T., and a former chief have reached a settlement.

Former chief Bill Norn filed a lawsuit against the First Nation after being suspended as chief in 2007. He was suing for $315,000 in lost wages plus damages. 

Leaders of the First Nation and Norn agreed to keep the details of the settlement confidential.

According to court documents, in September both sides agreed to negotiate a settlement telling the judge that it was "in the best interests of the community" and would save money.
